    Wow!! What an achievement specially on W&S with a traditional bow... well-done.
    I hunted with the PH Nico in the limpopo 10 years ago, he is a very nice guy.

    Nico said that this gentleman made his own custom bow and arrows. The draw weight was 80lbs., and the total arrow weight was just under 900 grains including a 200 grain, solid, 2-blade broadhead.

    Beautiful trophies and great skill required for such a hunt!

    Side note, is that a revolver I see on the hip of the ph?
